After thirty-eight years of success the world over, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio continues to dazzle audiences and critics alike with its performances. Since make making their debut at the White House for President Carter's Inauguration in January 1977, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jamie Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson have set the standard for performance of the piano trio literature, consistently bringing technical mastery, expressive depth, and magnetism to the concert stage.

After winning the Young Artists International Award and the Primrose International Viola Competition at the age of 17, Nokuthula Ngwenyama is now the director of the Primrose Viola Competition and  the recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Recently featured as a “Face to Watch" in the Los Angeles Times, her performances as orchestral soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician garner great attention. Gramophone proclaimed Ms. Ngwenyama’s playing as providing “solidly shaped music of bold, mesmerizing character," and the Washington Post described her as playing "with dazzling technique in the virtuoso fast movements and deep expressiveness in the slow movements."
